The party has promised “people-centred” municipalities if it won the local government elections.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said it would on Monday hold a national list conference, where the final list of councillors and party representatives standing in the local government elections would be adopted.

The EFF launched its election manifesto in April in Soweto, where it promised “people-centred” municipalities if it won the elections.

The EFF was founded in 2013 when at least 1 200 delegates gathered in Soweto and formed the radical and ultra-left political party, led by Julius Malema.

The August 3 polls will be the first local government elections the party takes part in, after it got more than one million votes in the 2014 general elections.
